Procurement: Technical Specifications for the Local Digital Twins (LDTs) Toolbox

The European Commission has opened a call for tender for the Procurement of the Technical Specifications for the Local Digital Twins (LDTs) Toolbox. The aim of this procurement is to define the technical specifications of this Local Digital Twin (LDT) Toolbox. Economic operators interested in this call are invited to submit a tender via the electronic submission system (e-Submission) available from the TED e-Tendering website. In order to propose the technical specifications of the LDT toolbox to be later developed and deployed (see DIGITAL workprogramme 2021-2022, section, this procurement needs to: map the relevant EU-based tech providers, gather via wide consultation the functional requirements for this toolbox, propose and validate a concept design and deployment scenarios under which to be deployed, draft the detailed technical specifications based on the preferred scenario and, finally, propose and validate a plan for large-scale adoption the of toolbox across the EU. The reason for purchasing this work is to make the best possible set of tools and their technical specs for the toolbox procurement, prepared by a relevant consortium, given that this expertise is not easily available in house. Economic operators interested in this call are invited to submit a tender via the electronic submission system (e-Submission) available from the TED e-Tendering website: Tenders are to be submitted via the electronic submission system on the TED e-tendering website Deadline for submissions: 27/12/2022 (16h00 CET)

CERIS SSRI event: Innovation Uptake of EU-funded Security Research outcomes

While EU-funded security research has largely demonstrated its impact in terms of value creation and knowledge generation, some questions require more insight. There is insufficient hard-evidence on how this knowledge is transferred from the research arena to the market arena. Innovation uptake is not a single-step process that happens only at the end of a research project and is automatically enabled by a successful research result. Innovation uptake shall be contemplated as a long process that is conditioned, among other issues, by a number of enabling actions taken up before research is even planned and long after it is completed. For this reason, DG HOME launched a “Study on the Factors influencing the Uptake of EU-funded Security Research outcomes” to bring more light to those factors. In the event, the study team will present the final outcomes of the study and will also present findings on the factors that are enabling or hindering innovation uptake. The aim of this event is to present the findings of the Study on the factors influencing innovation Uptake and discuss the challenges and the enabling actions of innovation uptake with the wider CERIS community. In addition, challenges and enabling actions to Innovation Uptake will be further discussed. Registration for the event is obligatory, you can register via the following link: CERIS SSRI workshop: Presentation of the Innovation Uptake Study results

ERC grants awarded to professor Inez Germeys

Professor Inez Germeys leads the Center for Contextual Psychiatry at KU Leuven, which is a large multi-disciplinary research group focusing on the interaction between the person and the environment in the development of psychopathology. She has received a European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator grant (INTERACT) and Proof of Concept grant (IMPACT). With these grants professor Germeys and her team researched a new mobile self-management therapy for patients with a psychotic disorder. The Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in Daily Life (ACT-DL) was further developed for the clinical environment. In line with that the Horizon 2020 IMMERSE project aims to thoroughly evaluate strategies, processes, and outcomes of implementing a digital mobile mental health solution.
